This spring, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) is rolling out a new adult-only wine milkshake that will give dessert-lovers and wine connoisseurs alike a reason to raise their glasses! Developed by Red Robin’s master mixologist Donna Ruch, the new Mango Moscato Wine Shake will be available through Sept. 1 exclusively at Red Robin® restaurants nationwide. Guests 21-and-over will enjoy this deliciously daring combination of Alice White® Moscato and SKYY Infusions® Moscato vodka with mango puree and creamy vanilla soft serve.
In a 2012 interview with National Restaurant News, Donna mentioned her plan to add some new adult drinks to the menu.
We wanted to reclaim our heritage of mixology. I think there are a lot of local places now that are doing a lot of creative things that you could only find in casual dining [chains] at one time…But we still have to be fun as we create drinks and drink platforms. That’s part of Red Robin’s culture. I mean — we have a drink called Flat on your Beak [made with rum, sloe gin, orange juice, sour mix and grenadine]…Right now I’m looking at our lemonades and milkshakes — those categories that I think will really resonate with our customers. I love the concept of adult shakes. It fits into what we do: It’s fun, and it’s milkshakes. And what goes better with a burger?
